Lyrics

Hear us, O Savior, while we pray,
Humbly our need confessing;
Grant us the promised showers today,
Send them upon us, O Lord.

Refrain

Send showers of blessing,
Send showers refreshing;
Send us showers of blessing;
Send them, Lord, we pray.

Knowing Thy love, on Thee we call,
Boldly Thy throne addressing;
Pleading that showers of grace may fall,
Send them upon us, O Lord.

Refrain

Trusting Thy word that cannot fail,
Master, we claim Thy promise;
Oh, that our faith may now prevail,
Send us the showers, O Lord.
